This is just the best macaroni salad! My husband doesn't like mayonnaise, mustard, or salad dressings, but he loves this salad. The blend of flavors are perfect. It's always a hit when I take it somewhere and someone always wants the recipe.

This is the closest I have come to my grandma's mac salad. I used mayo instead of salad dressing and no sugar. Thanks for getting me the closest I have come yet to her salad!

Made this for Easter and everyone enjoyed it. I followed the recipe as written other then I used regular mayo and not salad dressing. I also used splenda instead of sugar as that is all I buy. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
